Back in 2020, Alex Ross was tasked with making a humongous mural of some of Marvel Comics’ most iconic heroes to go on display at the publisher’s New York offices. But if you’ve got no reason to venture up to the corporate headquarters of a comics publisher, and are excited for San Diego Comic-Con this year, good news: you’ll soon be able to grab a copy of it for yourself.

io9 can exclusively reveal that Ross will be making prints of his Marvel: Heroes mural available for the very first time at this year’s in-person return to San Diego Comic-Con. As well as a life-sized recreation of the mural on display at Marvel HQ for fans to take photos with, Ross will release a limited-edition run of the print exclusive to Comic-Con, signed by the artist. And good news if you didn’t snag a ticket this year, as it’ll also be available to purchase online from Ross’ website for $395—which is also coincidentally the size of the print’s run, so you’ll have to act fast.
